Passoni Top Force - Shimano Dura Ace mechanical

Carl is a long time cyclist and IT meister and he loves his numbers and statistics, he can recall his best times on many an Alpine climb and Yorkshire Col at the drop of a hat. You have to get everything right for Carl, but surprisingly no powermeter.

The challenge with this build was to design a bike that not only fitted well but would also need to incorporate a new riding position, this can be risky as feeling not quite right on a brand new bike can be a bit of a drama after a five figure investment. We found the right place for Carl and he loves his Passoni, even the narrower handlebars, we're not so sure about that carbon saddle though!

What our clients say

  • "A great service, full of personal touches as well as the "harder" scientific analysis of my position on the bike, which was also excellent. I feel more planted on the bike now, and came away with some really useful feedback from the session."

    Ed H

    London Dynamo Rider

  • "Honestly these are great (custom orthotics). My feet feel totally balanced and stable and I‘m not searching for the pedal when I want to push it. They’ve made a massive difference.”"

    Tom Pidcock

    Olympic MTB Gold Medallist

  • "Very very personalised service. You arrive, they expect you, greet you by first name, have checked your file from past visits and set out very clearly what the process will be, what issues they're looking to address and how and they are happy to take the time to walk you through everything in layman's terms. Almost any professional service entity could learn a lot from how Cyclefit works. "

    Peter G.

    Recreational rider

  • "Cyclefit offers an in-depth and highly personalised approach to bike sales. Whatever your riding discipline (for me it’s road, gravel and MTB) the team in Covent Garden will find the right build for you. All this is built around a pro level bike fit and detailed component selection. Add to this the important items often overlooked beyond the bike itself such as shoes, insoles and saddle pressure mapping and it’s a full service operation."


    Self-confessed MAMIL

  • "A very thorough, professional and personal service. I was keen to analyse my bike position after breaking my hip. The custom footbeds and alterations to my position feel really good, just wish I’d come sooner! Many thanks"
